The drums along with the drummer are said to be the backbone of the band. They keep the rhythm and in turn everybody stays up to speed.

This collection of creative drum inventions jumps between the tools in which to play drums (cooking spoon drumsticks), electronic drum tools (USB drums and touch pad drums) and some drumming events/performances (4 year old drummer).

Tap your sticks together and start clicking to the beat!

Implications - Most of these drum innovations make the technical skill of playing percussion instruments accessible to consumers who have yet learned how to play drums. Corporations looking to introduce their wares to widespread audiences may consider providing consumers with a more readily accessible version of the product before upgrading them to the real item.
